Reseña de álbum

"Tight" isn't a word that fits comfortably when describing Thee Oh Sees, but on Help, the second full-length effort from John Dwyer's garage psych marauders, the band has certainly learned to find order amidst chaos in a manner that eluded them on their 2008 debut The Master's Bedroom Is Worth Spending a Night In. The basic approach on Help isn't particularly different than on Thee Oh Sees' first effort — the guitars are thick, ringing, and dripping with reverb and distortion, the rhythm section pounds away in a simple but relentless fashion, the massed vocals approximate vintage California-style harmonies in the midst of a trip on dirty acid, and the songs take traditional garage rock changes and bend them a wee bit as the production runs them through just enough low-budget studio trickery until they resemble a paisley nightmare oozing out of your speakers. Still, while most of the tunes on Help sound as purposefully messed up as ever, they're just a bit tidier and more straightforward here, and the stronger framework makes a positive difference. Similarly, the performances sound more unified and less chaotic here, as if everyone is following the same vision that lurks over the horizon for a change, and the ferocity of Dwyer's guitar is potent, locking into the crash-boom-bang of the bass and drums with impressive force. And while full-on assaults on reality like "Enemy Destruct" and "Soda St. #1" are the order of the day on Help, there's enough of a pop lilt in "Go Meet the Seed" and "Can You See?" to confirm these folks saw some real nice colors while making this album and have a variety of tricks in their repertoire to express them. You might not trust Thee Oh Sees to give you a ride home after a gig, but if you're looking for a seriously buzzy rave-up, Help certainly delivers the goods.

Like a roll of Lifesavers left out in the sun for too long, the new album from Thee Oh Sees is a little sticky, a little sweet, but still really good. The cover only hints at this; from first song to last, Help oozes that reverb-heavy jangle that often gets omitted in slick studio albums these days. It probably doesn’t hurt that TOS’s main guy, John Dwyer, has been doing this forever (this happens to be the band’s seventh album). “Enemy Destruct”, the album opener, hits the ground running like The Cramps on psychedelics - or The Leaves on dope, depending on your point of view. Everything after follows suit, and while you could slap “garage rock”, “psych rock”, “rockabilly”, or a whole litany of names on the resulting sound, it’s just catchy pop music waiting to be the soundtrack to a sweltering summer day. And that’s no bad trip.

This album is so perfect.

Newcomer.

Never heard their stuff before but I love it. Reminds me of the 70s rock/punk era. With a spoonful of the Ramones sound. I, personally, like it a lot. It's definitely my kind of music.

One of the cornerstone bands of the post-millennium garage/psych resurgence, Thee Oh Sees represent a purposefully chaotic fusion of guitar and synth noise, strong and elemental melodies, and addled but focused attacks.
